We spent over $6200.00 on our van. Had a rebuilt engine delivered. They said it would take 3 days. 15 days later we get it back and have to return it in an hour because it was bucking when driven on the freeway. 7 days later we get it back again. Changed the transmission BUT the van still bucked. Another mechanic thought they didn't phase the distributor correctly and we take it back to them. Schedule an appointment so we could wait for the repair. Get there and they can't work on it for 3 days. Go to mechanic that told us the problem and the guy fixes it in 15 minutes. The distributor was off 20 point. Sent them the bill as it was something that should have been done when the engine was replaced. The problems with them just go on and on. They damaged the pulley attached to the harmonic balancer, I assume when they took out the engine. Could not find another locally and finally found someone who machined the wobble out of it. Sent them that bill too. As of today they have not paid for the repair work we have had to do other places because they are too busy or just don’t care. We aren't talking about a lot of money. $64.00 for the distributor and $43.00 for fixing the pulley they damaged. The other damage to the van we have fix ourselves, like the bent back door, grease on the car seat, door and carpet, broken bracket holding the turn lights, leaking radiator hose fitting, loose brackets for the transmission, cruise control not working, and other evidence of sloppy workmanship. If you are looking for a company that will make you want to drive your vehicle off a cliff after spending a ton of money this is the one to go to.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
